Are you looking for CNA training in Michigan, but unsure how you’re going to finance your schooling? Most states, including Michigan, offer free CNA training classes, if you take the time to investigate. We’ve done the legwork for you and have listed nursing homes and health care facilities that may offer free CNA training below.
Free CNA Training From the Red Cross
The Michigan Red Cross CNA training course is part of the No Worker Left Behind Act. If you earn less than $40,000 at your current position, you can qualify for free CNA training offered at the Detroit Michigan Branch of the American Red Cross.
Free CNA Training Through FAFSA
FAFSA is a federal grant offered by the government and can provide you with funds to pay for your CNA training. Depending on your income and other criteria, you may be eligible for 100% of your CNA training courtesy of a government grant. You’ll have to attend a CNA training program at a community or state college to be covered by a grant. There are also a few adult education programs covered by FAFSA grants. There is a drop down menu on the FAFSA website that provides the information you’ll need when looking for other educational institutions that can be covered under the grant.
Free CNA Training for those on Unemployment
If you are currently unemployed, your unemployment office offers a job placement program that can help you find CNA training at either low cost or no cost. Along with checking with your unemployment office, you also may find free CNA training through a nursing home. Nursing homes often offer free training in exchange for working for a contracted period of time with the facility.
